Bit of a grumble
on 2 November 2006
The first autobiography was enjoyable and as with that I wanted to hear this one read by the dulcit tones of the lad himself.
As with the first there is much to enjoy and we are brought up to date and get to enjoy some funny annecdotes and by and large things are kept pretty light and airy.
The one grumble is that there is perhaps one or two grumbles too many from Sir Tel. Now I know that this is his biog. and if he wants to have a whinge or 2 he is perfectly entitled to but it does seem that occasionally he does, well, go on a bit.
I wonder if this may be a result of the editing of the book to fit it onto 3 discs, maybe the book itself doesn't come over in the same way.
Either way this is not to say that this is not worth getting as there is still much to enjoy and for the most part this is a funny and interesting chat from one of the best broadcasters ever to grace a microphone.
